Jaffa Protein Pancakes & Chasing Dreams

So now I’ve posted my fool proof Protein Pancake Base Recipe, expect a lot of these posts to appear. I mean a lot. 

First, Let me share some very very exciting news with you. Today after much deliberation and self-doubting I enrolled to start my PT course and certification! I’m very excited and proud of myself and thought what better way to celebrate then with some delicious Jaffa Protein Pancakes.


Jaffa Protein Pancakes


1 quantity of Protein Pancake Base

1 Tbsp Cacao Powder

2 Tbsp water

1 Navel Orange

Greek Yoghurt and Dark Chocolate to serve



First off make up a quantity of Basic Protein Pancake mix and leave in the blender before adding 1 Tbsp of Cacao and and extra 1 Tbsp of water (this just ensures the mixture doesn’t become too dry). Blend until combined and set aside. 



Before you prepare your frying pan to cook the pancakes, de-skin and segment your orange and put in a saucepan with 1 Tbsp of water over low heat. Stir occasionally and boil until the orange is warmed through but has yet to become overly soggy. 


Spray your pan with oil and heat on high heat for about 1 minute before turning to low heat and adding about 1/4 Cup of Pancake mixture to the fry pan.


Cook for 2 minutes before flipping and cooking the opposite side for 2 minutes also. 

Repeat this process for the remaining mixture. It will yield 4 decent sized Pancakes. 


Finally dress your pancakes with the warm orange and greek yoghurt. Grate or break some dark chocolate on top and presto! Chocolatey, Citrusy Goodness! You’re Welcome


Protein Pancakes – The Everchanging Breakfast

Protein Pancakes are one of my favourite breakfasts, especially because you could eat them everyday of the week and never have to have the same type twice. While the add-ins vary, all of my protein pancakes are made on the same simple base recipe. 

Basic Protein Pancakes


1 Cup Oat Flour

1 Scoop Evolve Supernatural Vanilla Protein Powder

3 Egg Whites or 6 Tbsp Liquid Egg White 

1/4 Cup Water

1 Tsp Cinnamon

1 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder

Liquid Stevia to taste


I started with 1 cup of Quick Oats and processed in the food processor for about 2 minutes to make my oat flour. Generally 1 cup of Oats = 1 cup of Oat Flour.


Next up you add in the remainder of the dry ingredients and pulse a few times to combine.


Next add in the water, egg whites and sweetener and blend for about 30 seconds. 


Now, you could stop here and cook your protein pancakes BUT this is where the fun really starts – Endless Protein Pancake variations are before you. I will use this base for any Protein Pancakes on my blog and trust me, expect A LOT of them. 

Quick Protein Pancake cooking tip – Heat your oil and pan (I generally use Spray Coconut Oil) on high heat and then turn down to low just before adding your pancake mix and cook for about 2 minutes on each side – Slow Cooking, Low Heat, Better Pancakes. 


P.s Jaffa Protein Pancakes are on their way…
